Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was extra busy with the Storybook Felts projects this weekend. I hope to have a new set ready to go in the next couple of days. I have a few reviews I need to catch up on so I thought I would just squeeze them both in today. I hope you guys don't mind.
The first one is for Glasses. Yes, I said glasses.
There is a wonderful new online company named Firmoo.com that offers a great price for prescription and non-prescription glasses and sunglasses. They offered me a chance to get a free pair of glasses, of my choice, and I jumped on it. The pair I picked are semi-rimless and came in red. I normally would not have picked red, but since they were free I thought I would give a new color a try. Here is a couple lovely pictures of me wearing the new glasses.
I really like the rimless look. I think I will continue to get this kind from now on. I think this pair was a little wide for my face but they look pretty good. I don't normally use a lens for closeup vision in my regular glasses. Most of the time if I am reading or doing work closeup I just take my glasses off. The only problem with this is I can't see the TV or computer screen without my glasses. I decided it might be nice to have a little something for closeup in this pair. They are more for reading or computer work. They are great for sewing. My eyes are not getting as tired now when I am working. Firmoo even gives you the option to try on your glasses before you buy them. Simply take a picture of yourself closeup and then upload it on their site. Then just try on any pair of glasses to get an idea of what they will look like on you. The quality of the frames and lenses is wonderful. The prices are also very low. To get a prescription pair all you need is your current prescription to type in. I just called my eye doctor to get mine.
Here is a little more information about Firmoo.com.
The old opinion that glassesAny hot glasses/sunglasses /
are only necessities for people with vision problems has already gone. Glasses are increasingly becoming a fad and must-have accessories for celebs and fashionistas. Everyday we can spot millions of non prescription glasses wearers and we are constantly fascinated by many noted film stars’ signature non prescription glasses.They instantly upgrade your look of modern,sexy, vintage or geek by wearing different styles of frames.

I was given a free complete pair of glasses for my honest review. All opinions are mine.
My second review is on a book that I just finished reading.
Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate is her third book in the Moses Lake Series. I have not read the first two yet, but hope to very soon.
From the back of the book...
Sometimes love takes you on an adventure completely off the map. Mallory Hale's life quickly veers off course when she falls hopelessly in love. After a whirlwind romance, Mallory finds herself leaving the bustle and action of Capitol Hill for the remote town of Moses Lake, Texas-with husband, stepson, and a U-Haul in tow.
A sweet, mishap-filled journey into marriage, motherhood and ranch living ensues, and Mallory is filled with both the wonderment of love and the insecurities of change. But what she can't shake is the unease she feels around her husband's new boss, Jack West. Jack's presence-and his mysterious past-set her one edge, and when hits of a scandal emerge, Mallory finds herself seeking answers...and comes to realize that the middle-of-nowhere home she wasn't sure she wanted is the very place she'll risk everything to save.
From the minute I started this book I could not put it down. The deeper I read into it, the better it got. There is a lot of mystery that goes on it this book. Yes, it is a romance/love story, but it is also so much more. There are so many interesting people in this book. Some of them have a past that they want to keep hidden. There are Docksiders' who hang out at the local cafe and the crazy lady, Cowgirl Al, who lives next door and raises goats. You will also meet Keren and the summer school kids, most of whom are living in poverty in the Chinquapin Peaks area. Mallory learns that she needs to put her old self behind and learns how to open up to these unique people that she is with on a daily basis.
Mallory has a hard time getting used to being a step-mom and not having a job. Her sisters and friends from DC are all busy with their lives and don't have time to talk to her and answer emails all day. Then her sister and her friends tell her she needs to start writing all of her adventures down. She thinks they are crazy. After her friends set up a blog for her she decides one night that it might be a good idea to write some of it down after all. Then her blog, The Frontier Woman, becomes a big hit, not only with her family and friends but with the world. Then she finds herself in the middle of a mystery/controversy that could change a lot of lives. Will she risk it all to protect the new friends that she has made?
I could go on and on about this book but you need to read it for yourself. If you want to read the first chapter, just click on the image above and it will take you to the authors website. You can read the first chapter of this book as well as some of the others that she has written.
I was given a copy of this book by Bethany House for review purposes. All opinions in this review are mine.
Now that I have shared these goodies with you, feel free to share your links with me below. I'm off to finish up this weeks Storybook Felts set. Roar....
